were two counties, cuyahoga which includes cleveland and also franklin county which includes columbus, ohio, where i am where he racked up large margins and also racking up large margins but thele vote count was down by a total of 50,000 or more. if you figure that the president would get about 60% of those votes, that say lot of votes he is not getting that he otherwise had gotten four years ago, so right now we're looking at a very tight race basically tied with about 30% of the vote still to go. i should note that hamilton county, that key county in the southwestern part of the state, right now the president is doing very well there with early results in, but there's still a lot more votes to be counted down there in hamilton county, george. >> so bring us up to date now, george, on the electoral votes then take us to florida. let's keep -- >> we see the electoral votes in so far, 244 for president obama, 203 for governor romney. that means that president obama needs 26 more electoral votes to get to 270. obviously 67 for governor romney. florida key to all that, that's got 29 elec
